Updated on February 27, 2013

Corn Meal Pie, Corn Meal Cake, and Other Cornmeal Desserts Here!

When I think of corn meal pie (Or chess pie) I think of the good ole days. My grandma's church held annual homecoming dinners outside with at least one large homemade plank-wood table filled with a plethora of desserts. Among these sweet delights were these cornmeal pies. They were not the most fancy pies, but they were one of my favorites, This lens gives on of these recipes that my Mama Ruby used to prepare. I give it to you by her permission. I also include many other recipe links for corn meal desserts, I also include the cornmeal cake recipe I think you will enjoy!

      I called mom, and she said 3 tablespoons - somehow we made a typo.

      This sounds delicious. I'm surprised there are so few ingredients with only 3 tsp of cornmeal.
